As an open water diver with SSI deep certification for 40M I was happy with recreational diving until Feli took us to the World of Tech diving after giving us a course on Padi Tech-40. The attention was great, as it was just myself and my dive buddy. What more to do the final dive on the HMS Hermes! Probably... More

My dive buddy and I went to DSR for the weekend to do some diving and what Felician delivered was out of the box! He gave us a training session in tech diving which was followed by sea based dress rehearsals for the main event - the Hermes. Felician was an excellent guide and his wife Renuka a friendly host...

As everyone here stated, it is purely aimed at the diving community -for now- as Feli is expanding to handle bigger groups and the more recreational type of diver. Had a great couple of dives including the Hermes, but because of family we were staying a bit up north near Pasikudah so Feli even picked us up to dive the... More

Just came back from bringing 12 clients to dive the HMS Hermes with Feli of Sri Lankan Dive Tours. Feli was well organised. Everyone arrived into Colombo at different times. There was someone to pick everyone up and transport them to the Hotel before we took the trip to Batticaloa. Diving was well organsied. Trimix, Deco gases, CCR support, Boosters,... More

We visited so I could dive HMS Hermes. The accommodation is simple but clean and has everything you need, we had no problems. The diving was superb and Feli knows the wreck like a second home, everything went well and I would recommend Feli highly. The food at the center is cooked fresh to order and is very tasty. We...

As with most people we went here to dive HMS Hermes. The diving was great, and Feli made sure the dives went smoothly. Feli, family, and the rest of the staff made our stay most enjoyable, and could not do enough to make us feel welcome. The food is plentiful and very tasty, the rooms are comfortable, and are what...

Accommodation: From previously seen photos (from Trip Advisor) you could tell, that this is aimed at purely divers and not for holiday makers. Accommodation was basic - but very clean and just what was needed. Each room had AC, shower and bathroom. Food: We opted for the full board option and 3 cooked meals were provided each day. Omelette for... More

Although we didn't dive as it was off season we had a wonderful holiday at the Deep Sea Resort. It's located in a scenic and tranquil environment by the lagoon. Located away from the hustle and bustle of our city life we could experience peace. Early morning walks on the beach or by the lagoon are both equally adventurous. Some... More

Our long awaited dive trip to dive the World War 2 British aircraft carrier 'HMS Hermes' was fantastic. Feli and his staff did everything they could to make our stay and the diving as special as possible. Although the accommodation is somewhat basic it was clean and cool thanks to the air-conditioning. The food was plentiful, very tasty and always... More

A wee gem, a long way from our home in Scotland. Our long laid plans for diving HMS Hermes fell into disarray when the live aboard boat was cancelled with two weeks notice. Our late fall back plan was Deep Sea Resort. The accommodation is functional, clean, AC works, and nothing fazes the team - they made every effort to... More
